Life Impact Prevention Projects support schools for migrant children, shelter homes, and at-risk families monthly! Following is just one example of the many projects where you have prevented children from exploitation.

Kilo 20

Well, once they are old enough to work, they can’t go to school anymore. They have to work to support their family. If the children don’t work, they don’t eat.

“Every child in this village?”
Yes, every child. In the beautiful, green, lush mountains away from our border town, there is a poor farmers village with no electricity or running water. The children go to work at age 12 and this puts the majority of them at risk.

One thing we know on the border is this: Poverty + Desperation + Children + No Education = Exploitation

We found Kilo 20, a tucked away village, just in time! Seeing the urgency of the situation and knowing what happens to children whose parents are in desperate situations like this, we decided to act!

Kilo 20 is now on our prevention radar. Life Impact supports a school, feeds the children, and sends a prevention team each week for the precious faces in the village! This is one less pool for the traffickers to prey on!

In addition to 120 rescued and orphaned children in Life Impact’s Safe Homes, we also have hundreds of children in our prevention projects that we provide for, feed, and check on weekly! We are just as committed to PREVENTING child exploitation as we are to rescuing children from exploitation! Your faithful support not only goes to the aftercare of innocent victims, but it also goes towards the prevention of the next child victim!

Together we are truly PREVENTING, RESCUING, and HEALING children from exploitation!
